Goals and Challenges
Now that the surface is successfully treated with a Permatect protective barrier, harsh chemicals and aggressive equipment are no longer necessary to maintain the desired appearance. We want the care takers of these surfaces to use mainly FRESH WATER and a LIGHT amount of a neutral or general purpose cleaner. Too much soap will create a haze or a cloudy film look on the shiny surface of the coating. In order to keep best shine, fresh water should rinse neutral soap and dry mop after extraction. Our goal is to create best results for housekeeping staff, leadership and your customer.
A routine should be put into place on frequency of deep clean depending on surface traffic. For example, Permatect would like staff to scrub and extract a very high traffic public restroom or cafeteria several times a week, while a staff restroom could benefit from deep clean once a month. Implementing this routine cleaning will prolong the life of your Permatect investment.
Chemical: A LIGHT solution of your neutral cleaner or disinfectant. Too much soap will leave a film on the shiny sealant.. Mostly clean water!
- Nylon deck brush or soft bristle grout brush for baseboards and areas that machinery wont be able to get.
- Low speed buffer with soft bristle brush attachment
- Mop bucket with pitcher to apply water/chemical solution to floor
- Wet-Vac system
- Clean towels or dry flat mop
- Floor fan for larger areas
Routine Cleaning Continued Process:
- Apply water solution to the surface
- Scrub areas with brush on stick that machine wont reach ( behind toilets in stalls, on walls and baseboards near soap dispenser and trash can areas
- Scrub floors with buffer and soft bristle brush
- Squeegee soiled water to center of floor
- Use wet vac system to remove soiled water
- Use DRY mop or towels to get any residual water and cleaner* This step will GREATLY improve the daily appearance
